Thank you for a gorgeous week! We loved VJ’s delicious food. The best curries and amazing puddings! It has been a brilliant, child-friendly villa with great surfing lessons just down the beach. We loved the Virgin Tea Estate, turtle sanctuary & a trip to Koggla Lake to see the cinnamon!

Pete & Alyson – Gold Coast, Australia

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Tea Tree Villa with eight of our closest friends. What a fabulous venue with attentive and caring staff, nothing was too much trouble. Madhu is kind and caring and ensured our stay is perfect. VJ cooked beautiful meals. Our favourites were hard to pick as we enjoyed it all. We all loved the baked snapper and the chocolate brownies were a great hit. Breakfast was always a highlight of the day. The boys in the team were helpful and polite. Thank you so much to all at Tea Tree Villa. xx

PS: “Tea Tree Villa is a very special place and should not be missed by anyone visiting Sri Lanka”.

What a little piece of paradise this is. Completely met our expectations. And Madhu and her team were wonderful, not to mention VJ’s amazing food. The only downside is we are taking home a few extra kilos around the wasteline :) Can’t wait to come back!

Rhonda & Joe – Ballarat, Victoria, Australia

This has been the highlight of our visit to beautiful Sri Lanka! We have enjoyed every minute, thanks to the efforts of Madhu, VJ, Chammi and all the boys! The delicious food, beautiful pool and garden areas have been magical. The rooms have been fresh and welcoming. Thank you all!

However we do think the boys should have been coaching our Australian men’s cricket team - as the girls (us) won the Freddie trophy!!!

They have exceeded our wildest dreams of being nurtured and looked after on our holiday. We will be back to visit these beautiful people in beautiful Ahangama, Sri Lanka.


Such a beautiful villa and equally beautiful country. Staff here at TT Villa were outstanding and made me feel like a real queen! Madhu is so lovely and does an amazing job keeping everything organised! VJ - one of the most unforgettable factors of this holiday was the beautiful meals you cooked for me and my family. I will miss everyone’s warmth & smiling faces, including Poppy! Thank you Tea Tree Villa team - I’ll never forget this holiday.

Thank you so much to Madhu and the amazing Tea Tree team – we have had a fantastic stay!  Thank you for taking such good care of us.  The food service has been wonderful.  Thank you for making the “recovery day” post wedding, so perfect.  All 50 guests loved the villa and you all made it so relaxing and prefect.  We will be back!!

We have never stayed somewhere with such amazing attention to detail.  Madhu, you truly create a wonderful experience for everyone.  “Hat’s off” to the Chef for a taste sensation.  Would travel back across the globe for that mango salad!  The perfect destination!

We never could have imagined just how great our stay was going to be here at Tea Tree Villa.  The accommodation and grounds are just lovely but the lovely team of people here.  Thank you for all your hard work, delicious food and looking after us so well.  Madhu – you are wonderful!  We will be back xxx

What can I say – beautiful villa, fantastic food and such tentative staff.  What more could you want.  We couldn’t have had a better introduction to Sri Lanka.  Can’t wait to come back.  Thank you for making it so special.

Amazing place to spend time in Sri Lanka.  Great for big groups (we are 14 young adults), staff are incredibly helpful and the house is stylish, luxurious and grand.  Food by Chef VJ was beyond what we hoped for, especially the snacks!!!  Thanks for a great stay.  Best wishes.

The Hague, The Netherlands and Liverpool, England

The last 5 days at Tea Tree Villa have allowed us to have a glimpse of paradise.  The villa, with its stunning views, the staff and the scrumptious food were second to none.  A huge thank you to Madhu, VJ, Mahesh, Sangeeth, Danusha and Tharusha for looking after our every need.  The only ‘fly in the ointment’ is that we have to leave.  We sincerely hope to return some day and Madhu, we will keep your business card in a very safe place for future reference.  A fantastic time was had by all.  We will recommend this villa to anyone we know coming to Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is such a beautiful country, as are the Sri Lankan people of which all of you at Tea Tree Villa are a prime example of.

We will miss you!!!  Our best wishes.

We are finally coming down to earth after our vacation to Sri Lanka and in particular, Tea Tree Villa.  Tea Tree Villa was a bit of paradise here on earth.  

Of our group of 11 persons, our stay at Tea Tree could not have been more idyllic.  From start to finish, we have not one single complaint.  Where do we start…. the beautiful villa, view and all of the staff there were first class.  

From the moment of our arrival there, Madhu could not have been more gracious.  We discussed the menus, of which had seemingly laid out by Island Holidays, and it was not to our specification at all, with there being no consideration of whether we had vegetarians, Madhu immediately put us at ease by doing business the way she normally does.  We could choose our meals from your menu and all of the food, be it Sri Lankan or Western, was all divine.  The chef at Tea Tree really knows his way around a kitchen, that was plain to see.  The food was of the highest class and we all thoroughly enjoyed every morsel!!    

The villa is so beautiful, air conditioning in all the bedrooms and the bedding was just to die for!!  One day, we were going on safari and would not be back until late.  Madhu and all the staff delayed their off time to enable us to have our dinner on our return.  It was so much appreciated by us all.  The staff were all so discreet around the villa but always seemed to be there when we required some help.  Massages were arranged for us also.  What more can I say, it was just a fantastic place to be and we will remember it forever.  We have Madhu’s business cards and will store them very carefully should anyone we know go to Sri Lanka, we will advise them to spend some time at Tea Tree Villa.  We also hope we get to revisit sometime.
